Milk Thistle

The List

Location – Bristol

Inside this cool Bristol prohibition-style cocktail bar, you will find art deco furnishings in a quirky and comfortable environment.

Milk Thistle is set over four floors in one of Bristol’s finest historic buildings in the old city and is a delight to drink in.

Self-described as the “big little sister of Hyde & Co”, Milk Thistle opens Monday to Saturday from around 5pm until late (from 6pm on a Saturday).

In the Parlour and Lounge, there are cocktail bars offering table service and all manner of beverages, in the Attic is a private dining room being able to accommodate up to 16 guests, with food being served up by their sister restaurant The Ox.

Cocktail prices range from a reasonable £9 up to £9.50 for the house made specialities, with single serves of spirits ranging from £5 to something a little more pricey for rarer drinks.

The cocktail menu includes the Bristol tea, which has been described as “everything a Bristol bartender loves in a glass”, an old fashioned style drink with a Bristolian twist (£9.50). Plus a drink that is “a Scottish camping experience disguised as a cocktail” utilising Horlicks for pure authenticity, The Narrow Quay (£9.50).

There is one more floor to mention, but until the Autumn, the goings on in The Vault will have to remain a secret.

With a relaxed atmosphere, where the team does the walking for you, they always they recommend you book as they hate turning you away at the door. Come in and spend a night with The Milk Thistle team.
